Meet Vicki. Diagnosed with a rare eye condition aged four, she embarked on a rollercoaster journey of life with a disability. Vis-Ability introduces readers to Vicki in her early years.

As her story continues, Vicki faces further problems with her remaining eye, dealing with chronic pain and a rare genetic eye disease.Describing the difficulties she encountered at school and as she entered adulthood, Vis-Ability strives to raise awareness of vision impairment. The book contains advice on how to deal with a visual disability, as well as a variety of options on offer to those who are visually impaired. It is a story of positivity in the face of adversity and making the most of every opportunity.Speaking about her book , Vicki says: "I wrote the book because I feel that in general, there is a misunderstanding of the definition 'vision impairment' and it's my goal to correct this. I feel that it is my purpose in life to raise awareness of vision impairment through telling my story of living with a disability that is invisible to the public eye..Hertfordshire author Vicki L. Griggs is registered partially sighted. Having been a patient at Moorfields Eye Hospital since she was four years old, she has been working there for seven years as a play leader at The Richard Desmond Children's Eye Centre.
